A man's body washed up on the beach on South Padre Island. Authorities say a passerby spotted the body at about 8:30 a.m. today. The U.S. Coast Guard spent this past weekend looking for the body of 59-year-old man that had fallen off a shrimp boat. They called off the search late Monday. At this time authorities do not know if this is the body of the shrimper they were looking for.
The dead man was described as being in his fifties and approximately five feet and two inches tall.
